    i have eibachs on a 30mm drop and also have 45 profile tyres and the ride is very nice indeed

    i think having 35mm profile tyres you will feel all the slightest bumps on the road

    This isn't a recomendation, It's more about the choice i made.

    I put Jamex springs on my car 2 weeks ago now, ride not that harsh at all, thats a 40 drop. I'm not at all saying these are the best, usually, you get what you pay for, but i have no issues with Jamex for mine!

    I put a set of G-MAX 30mm drop springs in my 2.0 t and hated them,they banged and growned on every bump,give them 2 a mate with a 1.8ls and he hates them 2!Fitted koni's same drop and no probs.Spend the extra and get the eibach's!

    I think for a compromise i'd have to go for the Jamex,at £70 from LMF and a drop of 40mm,what more would you want.........

    P.S My next mod btw........

    Got H&R on mine, but wouldn't say they ride the bumps too well, the wife hates it LOL. Haven't been in a car with any other manufacturers so can't comment on them.
